The Deutsche Bundesbank Research Centre is kindly inviting you to participate in a Conference on "The Stability of the European Financial System and the Real Economy in the Shadow of the Crisis" organised in cooperation with the Technische Universität Dresden and the Journal of Financial Stability, which will be held january 17-18, 2013 in Dresden, Germany.
While still struggling with the legacy of the global financial crisis, European financial intermediaries have been additionally severely hit by the sovereign debt crisis. In order to prevent the collapse of the financial sector, the national governments and the Eurosystem have undertaken a number of measures ranging from adjustments in the regulatory framework to unprecedented emergency provisions.
For instance, by imposing tighter capital and liquidity standards, regulators aim at strengthening the resilience of the financial intermediaries and restoring confidence in the markets. The Eurosystem’s special refinancing operations, in turn, are intended to resolve the acute funding strains on the banks and prevent them from cutting back lending to firms and households. At the same time, there is growing concern that the new capital requirements could further exacerbate the institutions’ problems, while the emergency provisions of the Eurosystem could give rise to moral hazard problems.
The goal of the conference is to provide a forum for discussion on developments in the European financial sector in the aftermath of the crisis. The discussion will focus on the financial intermediaries’ responses to the changing regulatory and economic environment and on real activities.
We invite you to participate in the conference and submit theoretical and empirical papers on topics including:
Business models of financial intermediaries
- Banks’ funding strategies in the aftermath of the financial crisis
- Risk-taking and profitability of banks and insurance companies
- Renationalisation of the financial sector in Europe
Implications of the new regulatory requirements
- Deleveraging in the European banking sector
- Systemic implications of the new regulations
- Structural effects of higher capital and liquidity requirements
Feedback to the real economy

Along with your submission, please indicate whether you would like your paper to be considered for publication in a Special Issue of the Journal of Financial Stability. Papers submitted to the Journal will be subject to the Journal’s regular refereeing process. Acceptance of a paper for presentation at the conference does not guarantee publication in the Journal.
